The Oscars are this weekend! Prepare for an Oscar party your friends will never forget with these party planning tips.
Play Oscar Bingo and Predictions
Add an extra layer of fun to the Oscars by throwing some games into the mix! Print out ballots where your guests can guess the actors, actresses, and films taking home an Oscar. Or you can print out bingo boards with likely occurrences and sayings such as when the winner thanks their parents for their support. Make the games, even more, fun and competitive by giving trophies to the winners at your party. Our classic achievement award trophy is the perfect one to give out on Oscar night.
Make Gorgeous Oscar Themed Food
The Oscars is a night for all things fabulous, including fabulous food. After all, what's a party without food? Keep the Oscar theme going strong at your food table. One way to have glamorous food offered at your party are these tuxedo cake balls. These bit sized cakes are easy to make and will be dressed just like your favorite actors. Or you can make cookies that resemble the award of the night. Check out the full tutorial on how to make Oscar-shaped cookies here.
Decorate, Decorate, Decorate!
No party is complete without decorations. Draw inspiration from Oscar night itself. Think popcorn, formal attire, Hollywood Walk of Fame, or draw inspiration from the nominated films. Red carpets and gold stars are other great additions! Also, consider having an Oscar-themed photo booth. Your friends will love taking pictures throughout the night. All you need is a backdrop, which you can get at most craft stores! Keep on the theme by stocking up on Hollywood themed props for your friends to hold while in your makeshift photo booth.
Set a Dress Code
Give your friends a reason to dress up! Have your guests show up in dresses and suits/tuxedos, or have them dress up as their favorite role from a nominated movie. You can even announce that there will be a costume contest. This creates another game where you can award the best-dressed with a trophy!
Champagne is the drink of the evening! Take it to the next level by personalizing the glasses with engraving and making it an event where it's encouraged to steal the glass. Impress your guests with engraved champagne glasses featuring their initials or the date of the Oscars on them. Your guests will love the new addition to their glass collection! And the award for the best Oscar-themed party goes to... you!
